It’s a start! Not sure how it ended up in Idaho from New Smyrna Beach, Fl. Th rear tire is og but the front is Cheng shing, idk if it was a multi speed bike originally but the rear hub is suntour (I’ve seen derailures on the multi speeds with suntour) but can’t find any info on the single speed hubs/bikes for this year/model. Thinking I’ll build a 26” bmx with aftermarket components until I find the og, still don’t know if I want to make it a multi speed since all my bikes are coaster brake bikes but I think the single speed still had a freewheel. Any info or parts would be great. Also... cheap way for a bike stand, just hang a j hook from the rafters.

Nice bike!

Looking at your "Bike Stand", and after fooling with a worn out rear derailleur for a while yesterday, I'm going to hang the whole bike from the front wheel and get it up where I can see what is going on!

Cool find! I've got an 82 that I found here in Minnesota with a Longmont Colorado license.

The catalog from 82 says one speed freewheel along with 5 and 10 speeds. But in the description it says coaster brake. I'm thinking that was an oversight and it was freewheel as a one speed. Here's the history page on Sidewinder:
